Social and Cultural Wellness

Social and Cultural wellness are two of eight components found on the Wellness Wheel.

These components describe the development and maintenance of positive relationships. They involve establishing support networks, creating healthier relationships with family and friends, and respecting and learning about the cultural identities of others. 

International Student Services supports the growth, progress, and success of international students at McGill, and aims to ease their transition to a new school, a new home and a new country.

Equity at McGill embraces and champions equity, diversity, and inclusion across the university.  They seek to widen diversity within McGill, to educate and deepen our understanding and practice of equity, and to create accessible and accountable reporting processes.  Explore their comprehensive list of McGill's support services

First Peoples' House provides a “home away from home” for First Nations, Inuit and Métis students, creating a space where they can find academic support and stay connected to Indigenous culture.

Finally, Student Accessibility and Achievement uses a social model of disability which views disability as deriving from the interaction between the individual and the society, and therefore the remedy for disability-related problems is a change in this interaction by removing barriers (in classrooms, residences, or wherever students are receiving services).

Campus Life and Engagement is a great resource for connecting you to opportunities that will help you make the most of your time at McGill. They also offer specialized support for First Generation students, Francophone students and Commuter students.
